            A young Kodiak man is in Las Vegas today following his dream to compete professionally in the rodeo. Jay Barrett has more.

 

 

            Growing up a stone's throw from the Kodiak Rodeo Grounds, Malachi Peterson, says he has always wanted to compete professionally. He's currently a full-time student at Cuesta College in San Luis Obispo, California, a school he said he chose partially because there's a lot of rodeo in the area. In fact, the school even has its own team.

            I reached him yesterday on his cell phone, as he and his team-roping partner Ron Garcia were driving across the Mojave Desert, headed to Las Vegas for the World Series of Team Roping.

 

--          (100 thousand             14 sec              "There's three different ... 100,000 dollars apiece.")

 

            He described the teamwork needed in the event:

 

--          (describe team roping            23 sec              "There's two people ... then the clock will stop.")

 

            Peterson credits several friends in Pasagshak for helping advance as a rodeo cowboy:

 

--          (started                                   31 sec              "I started a little bit there ... for the rest of my life.")

 

            Peterson and Garcia competed in their first round event at about 6:30 this morning Alaska Time. They'll ride again on Friday.

            I'm Jay Barrett.
